Anansi Goes Fishing by Eric A. Kimmel“Anansi Goes Fishing” is the sequel to Eric A. Kimmel’s and Janet Stevens’ book “Anansi and the Moss-Covered Rock.” This time, Anansi meets his match when he goes fishing with Turtle and Anansi ends up doing all the work to catch a large fish, while Turtle just sits back and enjoys the show. “Anansi Goes Fishing” will be an instant hit to children who are fans of the “Anansi” series.
Eric A. Kimmel’s writing is clever as he brilliantly shows that Turtle can easily handle Anansi’s laziness by tricking him into actually doing work, therefore, showing the true meaning of what work is all about. Janet Stevens’ illustrations are as beautiful as ever as she displays the forest in various colors, mainly green, pink, and brown colors. The illustration that stands out the most in this book is probably the illustration of Turtle himself as Turtle is mostly in brown colors and is shown to be a wise looking animal indeed. I also love the illustrations of Turtle wearing beach outfits as he goes out to the river with Anansi as it indicates that he is truly going to relax while Anansi does all the work with catching the fish.
“Anansi Goes Fishing” is just as clever and hilarious as “Anansi and the Moss-Covered Rock” as the moral of the story here is that hard work truly pays off at the end, even when you least expect it! I would recommend this book to children ages five and up since I think that smaller children would have trouble sitting through this book since it may be too long for them to handle.
